More info on the Producer
Danny & Miles are amongst the finest of the UK's percussionists.
Danny has been around for years gaining a reputation for his immaculate timing and character - he's the king of pop percussion. Miles is more of a new face on the scene but has rapidly gained a reputation for the subtlety of his playing, more of a jazzy type than Danny.
Together the combination gave the CD a perfect balance.

"The production is superb: the recordings of the different instruments are outstanding and stereo panning is employed extensively...a very classy CD...for those who need access to a library of specialist percussion sounds." - Future Music, Nov 92.
"This should stand up as a shining example to anyone thinking of producing a sample CD...this is something special and more than useable - inspiring...sound quality is superb, as is the playing...A classic." - Melody Maker, July 93.

GENERAL: REX files are amazing! They are files created by Propellerhead's ReCycle that scan lice up any suitable rhythmic sample and produce a file that includes the sample data and sequence information. These files can be loaded by many of today's most popular software (Reason, Logic, EXS24, Cubase, Digital Performer, and many more!) and will automatically play at any tempo you choose. The software will also give you loads of additional options that allow you to control much more too - use the groove with other sounds, knock out a specific element or take out hits to use in your own loops, and much more! REX2 files are stereo and REX(1) files mono. MOST software supports both formats. You can even import REX files into ReCycle and export them to the huge number of samplers that supports. REXing files is a very skilled job. Some files are easy but a well-REXed library can take a huge amount of work to create. AMG released the World's first REX and REX2 CDs and have been pioneers of the format. If you've never used REX files check them out, once you've used them you'll never go back!
SPECIFIC: This CD features REX versions of every sample from the collection that is REXable. It also includes WAV files so other sounds are also included.
